Yesterday was my last day at my job.
It was a fairly stressful day; I was trying to wrap everything up and leave clear documentation for the open items where I was unable to finish, and I didn’t get to everything I had hoped I would be able to. And I was anticipating the meeting with my coworker and my boss to go not well, given how poorly last week’s meeting with her went.
But it was a fairly painless process. I let go of all of my work and handed it over to them.
And at 5:30 last night, I was finished and free.
I’m fairly certain that I’ve traded one kind of suck for another with this job. I’m frustrated already with the repeated requests for my time ahead of my start date, despite being clear about my boundaries. I’m not looking forward to commuting 2 hours every day now, instead of the 2 days a week I’ve been doing.
But at least it’s a different kind of suck.
And that’s something.
